circles about how active should israel be in going after hezbollah convoys, taking out strategic weaponry? israel is not as, i think there's more, i find there is no one in israel i think mets the united states, maybe you say this is a big mistake and maybe say i'm not talking to the right people but of all the people i talk to i didn't meet anyone who thought the u.s. would be decisive in syria. they have kind of, i won't say written off as the united states. they see it as such a mess they don't see how it will be reversed but at the same time they are concerned of hezbollah end of season sale taking whatever weapons that they can either into lebanon or maybe keeping it in a the past syria they deem friendly as kind of a depot of their own. and here i think a lot of israelis who want to start being more proactive in firing on hezbollah convoys there. they hit as you know that sa-17. those, that convoy, israelies are stunned that the russians have given this thing called this anti-ship missile which could hit things in the israeli port before they even leave israel's port. very advanced
families. that's why every country that values justice should call hezbollah what it truly is, a terrorist organization. because the world cannot tolerate an organization that murders innocent civilians, stockpiles rockets to shoot its cities, and supports the massacre of men, women, and children in syria right now. the fact that hezbollah has allied the assad regime has stockpiles of chemical weapons only heightens the urgency. we will continue to cooperate closely to guard against that danger. i've made it clear to bashar al assad and all who follow his orders, we will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons against the syrian people or the transfer of those weapons to terrorists. the world is watching. we will hold you accountable. the syrian people have the right to be freed from the grip of a dictator who would rather kill his own people than relinquish power. assad must go, so that syria's future can begin. because true stability in syria depends upon establishing a government that is responsible to its people. one that protects all communities within its borders, while making peace
these chemical weapons not only could be used by the regime in syria but handed off to al-qaeda, hezbollah and used by terrorists against israeli citizens. >> there was a report on another network last night that suggested there was a high probability that chemical weapons had been used. there were suggestions if so the president would have been briefed on the plane. they would have gone through a drill. there were concerns about whether a cornered al assad might hit jerusalem or israel. it was dramatic and it made me wonder if we missed something. i wonder what you're sense of where we are on this matter today is. >> reporter: well, it still is confusing. there are reports all over the map. prime minister netanyahu's intelligence minister today telling army radio that there are suggestions to him that chemical weapons in fact were used by the syrian government. but there was a hearing on capitol hill where in fact there were lawmakers kicking it around and the u.s. embassador to syria said we don't know this as a fact yet. it needs to be investigated. the embassador echoed what president
in the hands of terrorists or anti israeli extremists like hezbollah. mr. obama is stressing he is skeptical that they used chemical weapons and cautioned that the u.s. is still investigating claims that syrian president use them, the president a bushel when israeli reporter suggested that the u.s. has been sitting on its hands. >> is incorrect for you to say that we have been nothing. we have helped to mobilize the isolation of the regime internationally. we have supported and recognized the opposition. >> except the president for said that in 85 days were numbered 19 days ago. last summer he warned of potential u.s. force. >> are red line for us is, we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. that would change my calculus. >> reporter: back in washington a top republican charge the administration's policy has been addressed. >> the obama administration saw a reformer. once the revolt started, they backed u.n. diplomacy. then they bet on moscow to play a constructive role. predictably, none of this has worked. >> reporter: here in israel today netanyah
-israeli extremists like hezbollah. mr. obama stressed he is skeptical that the weapons in syria use chemical weapons and caution the u.s. is investigating claims that the syrian president bashar assad used them, the president bristleed when israeli reporter suggested the u.s. has been sitting on their hands. >> it's incorrect for you to say we have done nothing. we helped mobilize the isolation of the assad regime internationally. we have supported and recognized the opposition. >> the president first said assad's days were numbers 19 months ago. last summer, he warned of potential u.s. force against syria. >> red line for us. we start saying bunch of chemical weapons moving around or utilized. that would change my calculus. >> back in washington today, the top republican charged the administration's policy has been adrift. >> the obama administration saw assad as a reformer in their words. it backed the u.n. diplomacy and bet on moscow to play a productive role. none of this worked. >> netanyahu's intelligence director said it's clear that the chemical weapons were used in syria. the chairman of th
't degenerate. that entire region with assad completely on the side of iran and lebanon and hezbollah, this is a regional conflict that many of us have an trying to plead that will expand into the entire region, affect the economy and energy prices. melissa: let me ask you about that. what does it mean for the econy? the human toll is devastating and makes us all shudder to see the pictures. this is a show about "money". we want to make sure we discuss that. what does decivilization mean for the economies of the region? >> well, because you have sort of the shia-sunni ax splitting right in the middle of syria you will see the arab sunni states, the gulf states getting involved. they may find the destabilization prevents transport of oil like it used to. they jack up prices to get world attention and also because maybe they will have to as the region becomes destablid with iraq and iran involved. so at the end of the day i think you're going to see, your segment with boone pickens was so right on the money, we have to find alternative. if there is any message not only to get involved,
in peace. hezbollah is a terror organization, not a political movement. the collect missiles. they are trigger happy. they hide it may -- missiles and peaceful towns and villages, and by doing so, they make them award target. they divide the man on the politically -- lebanon politically. it turned the land of the free the land of scorched citizens. apart fromivate army the national army. they send that soldiers to support the massacre of the bloody dictators of syria without the organization of the government of which they are a member of. in history 20 terror attempts were counted. india, thailand, georgia, south africa, united states, greece among others. last month the government of of the european union identified a terrorist attack was carried out by hezbollah. cyprus recently arrested a terrorist planning a terror attack. distinguished member of parliament. save the 11 on from terrorist madness. save the people. save citizens and hours from hezbollah. the national committee has to designate them as a terrorist organization because they are a terrorist organization. rece
for safekeeping. given the fact hezbollah and any number of terrorist organizations are lurking around one corner or the next of any syrian city, who knows what's going on there. there's no guarantee anyone has control over these weapons. the fact of the matter is putting boots on the ground at this point is not going to solve the problem of where these wmd stockpiles go. >> dana, this has an eerie echo of that other despotic leader, saddam hussein, who used chemical weapons against the kurds in 1996. is this the next desperate act of a man who's about to use power? >> well, let's hope not, martin. and particularly on the tenth anniversary of the iraq war, the administration is certainly being very careful not to be responding to what just may be some half-baked reports that my colleagues are picking up that same element of skepticism that this is something real. but obviously as the ambassador was saying, if this is something real, the administration's previous statements have left very little wiggle room and they will have to respond. so certainly the caution upfront is very justified. >> indee
in harm's way in syria, because it is a syria war. it's hezbollah versus hamas. neither of which are friendly to us. >> again, richard, saying we don't understand the culture, when you look back ten years ago tonight, was we went into this, look at the costs. $1.7 trillion. >> right. >> benefits owed to war veterans, $490 billion. i mean, how can republicans who put this war on a credit card now say we need to tighten our belt and cut programs for the poor and working class? >> that's a great point. you know, the bush administration fired the economic adviser who said that the iraq war would cost about $100 billion. because they thought it was too much. they got it wrong about iraq. they also said, by the way, the iraq that had been invaded by america would become an ally against iran. they got that wrong, too. it's not just about the cost. strategic judgments were wrong. when dick cheney says it's more important to be successful than to be liked, he wasn't successful. his premise failed. from the beginning it failed. in the middle it failed and in the end. >> he certainly wasn't
and advanced conventional weapons reaching the wrong hands. wrong hands could be hezbollah in lebanon. an ally of assad. regime of damascus. or opposition groups that may be outside the realm of what the intelligence community knows about. this information is shared and israelis said they would react again and have reacted by military in lebanon. beth parties are very concerned about what is happening in syria and of course chemical weapons are first among them. i think this is a very volatile situation that could develop any week as we saw yesterday with the latest report. >> andrea mitchell was reporting how this could be a new beginning for netanyahu and obama. how there was more warmth between them or less after chill between them might be a better way of phrasing it. but i wonder to the extent that true, how much do you think that has to do with the simple fact that obama was re-elected last year? so much of the frostiness in the first term seemed to be na netanyahu was basically betting that obama would be a one-term president. betting on romney victory. here is the re-elected more confi
's grave concern about the transfer of chemical or other weapons systems to terrorists. such as hezbollah. that might be used against israel. the assad regime must understand they will be held accountable for the use of chemical weapons or their transfer to terrorists. and finally, we continued our close consultation on iran. we agree that a nuclear armed iran would be a threat to the region. a threat to the world. and potentially an skoesten shl threat to israel. we do not have policy of containment when it comes to a nuclear iran. our policy is to prevent iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. we prefer to resolve this diplomatically. and there is still time to do so. iran's leaders must understand, however, that they have to meet their international obligations and meanwhile the international community will continue to increase pressure on the iranian government. the united states will continue to consult closely with israel. on next steps and i will repeat all options are on the table. we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting the world's worst weapons. meeting none of
't run someone for president and they did. we've seen hamas stronger as well as hezbollah, islamic jihad. and we've seen incredibly unstable situation in syria. when i was there on a congressional visit and we sat down with president netanyahu, one thing he asked, he was concerned about iran and the dominance and occurred and we have the iranian guard in syria. and their march toward having the nuclear device so they can have dominance. >> sean: that's all true and it's gotten worse, leslie, after the suck up to the world apology tour. and king be abdullah, jordan, says it's naive, that the muslim brotherhood are wolves in sheep's clothing, risky for him. and this president is giving 1.5 billion dollars, and f-16 jets and tanks it a guy that views the israelis as the descendents of apes and pigs. do you think that's a good foreign policy, leslie marshall? >> i don't think it's a good foreign policy to pretty much be-- is that a good policy. >> i'm answering, as to how we establish borders and whether we have further settlements in the west bank. >> sean: leslie, leslie, stop with the spi
, if hezbollah, the sworn enemy in lebanon get these weapons there will be hell to pay for israel. >> ifill: margaret warner, thank you. >> brown: tomorrow, margaret will report on president obama's trip to the west bank and his meeting with president mahmoud abbas of the palestinian authority. still to come on the "newshour" tonight: after our look at the questions surrounding chemical weapons in syria; the state of play on gun control laws; life and death in the emergency room in newark, new jersey and high speed internet changing what we watch and how we watch it. but first, the other news of the day. here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreenivasan: the federal reserve stood by its aggressive plan to stimulate the u.s. economy, keeping short-term interest rates at record lows. and it said there are signs the economy is getting stronger. one of those signs-- unemployment-- fell to a four- year low of 7.7% in february. still, the fed predicted it won't reach 6.5% until 2015. the fed and its chairman, ben bernanke, also had words of caution for congress. >> i do believe that long-term fiscal stabil
. we're very concerned about these chemical weapons being taken or handed over to hezbollah in lebanon. i'll remind you there's roughly 60,000 missiles in lebanon targeted at the north and center of israel. the chemical weapons exist in syria. the missiles exist in lebanon. and when you connect the two, it's a mortal risk for israel and we'll protect ourselves against this sort of action. >> naftali bennett on the security. it's been three months since the shooting at sandy hook elementary school. but to night we just -- this just crossed. it shocked us. a statistic on gun permits. plus the ceo of starbucks comes "outfront." he takes on mayor michael bloomberg and all of washington. why not? >>> and a set of giant rockets discovered in the bottom of the ocean. we're going to show you the pictures and tell you exactly where these came from. from meeting customer needs... to meeting patient needs... ♪ wireless is limitless.

as the country fragments following in the hands of al qaeda, maybe hezbollah and being used against israel in jerusalem and all around this country, shep. >> shepard: ed, it still seems unclear whether either side used chemical weapons. >> that's right. now, the israeli intelligence minister today said he believes that chemical weaponsy were, in fact, used. the republican house intelligence chairman mike rogers back in washington went on cbs news and said he also believes that chemical weapons have been used inside syria in recent days. he added an important caveat. take a listen. >> there is a high probability that a chemical agent was used in aleppo. now, again, i'm an old fbi guy. i like to see forensic evidence. >> now, on top of all of this, there was testimony today in a house committee where the u.s. ambassador to syria basically said that he believes that the syrian regime has now lost control of the border with turkey and iraq and in jordan tonight which the president by the way will be visiting on friday. there is fears about a refugee crisis. refugee spilling out of syria into j
and the opposition. it is a regional war by proxy. you have rapp and iraq and hezbollah supporting him. on the other hand you have turkey and qatar. not only a regional war by proxy. you have russia and the united states. i would argue that president barack obama has been reluctant to intervene directly by either providing arms to the opposition or sending american boots on the ground. what i like to see is a concerted effort on the part of the united states, leading the effort to really broker a political settlement, a diplomatic solution. there is no military solution in syria. syria is not libya. even though i would argue that the rebels will ultimately win there particular struggle in the long term, we don't know. one or two years. at the end of it, there will be no syria as we know it. there will be no state as we know it. and more important from my point of view, there will be the social fabric, the diversity would most likely be destroyed. not to mention the that i willover effects from syria into will he be none and jordan into iraq and even into turkey. >> wow! a dramatic scene that you pai
brewing in israeli policy circles about how active israel should be in going after hezbollah convoys, taking out weaponry. i find there is nobody in israel that i met that since the united states -- maybe you think this is a big mistake --of all the people i talk to, cannot meet anyone who thought the u.s. would be decisive in syria. they see it as such a mess that they do not see how it will be reversed. at the same time, they are concerned about has allowed -- weaponszbollah taking into lebanon or keeping them in parts of syria as a depot of the run. there are a lot of israelis who want to start being more proactive in firing on has blocked convoys -- on he zbollah convoys. the israelis are stunned that russians have given an anti-ship missiles that can hit things in israeli ports grid these are very advanced missiles. -- ports. these are very advanced missiles. it is defense for them. israel feelsime, that there might be certain defensive measures. they are notm -- out to doing any sort of border zone like they did in lebanon. , think the discussion on syria some believe the count
, chemical weapons and others, will fall into the hands of extremist groups like hezbollah or al qaeda. imagine if those sort of hard-line terrorist groups were to get their hands on chemical weapons. >> well, do you feel, though, at this point, that they have been used based on what we're hearing yesterday and does your intelligence tell you that they are now in play? >> we're being cautious like the u.s. government. we haven't addressed that issue publicly yet. we might soon. but the concern has been there for a very long time. you have a regime that is falling apart. a brutal regime which is apparently on its last leg, that is fighting for its life. you have on the ground in syria, on the side supporting assad you have groups like the iranian revolutionary guard on the ground with the assad regime. you have lebanese hezbollah on the ground with the assad regime. on the opposition side, you've got some actors that are also very problematic groups affiliated with al qaeda. and as we see syria fragment if we're going to see the linkup between these sort of extremist groups and weapons
, the house foreign affairs committee holds a hearing on the threat and origins of hezbollah. all these events tonight starting at 8:00 p.m. eastern n the c-span networks. >> hired a very expensive carriage, elizabeth monroe dressed herself in her best and went to the prison where she -- where the madam was being held. she met with madam lafayette and basically made her case a public one. and some stories say, you know, next day she was released. it wasn't the next day. it was a couple of months. but it pretty much kept her from going to the guillotine and it eventually did lead to her release. >> in some ways she has her own cause. she works with the washington female orphan asylum so in that sense that's somewhat modern, having this cause that she was involved in. and she does work politics in her parlor, in such a way as to help win the presidency for her husband in her own way. >> our conversation with historians on elizabeth monroe and luisa catherine adams is now available on our website, c-span.org/firstladies. earlier today, british army lieutenant general nick carter briefed reporters
through air space as well as the weapons. so we see that and see at the same time hezbollah on the ground now in syria. this has been raised as i understand it, several times by the government in iraq. but still the government there is ramping this up. if we really grasp the strategic opportunity here, it seems like one of the easiest things we could do would be to lean on the iraqis and get this process. i was going to ask how hard has the administration weighed in with iraqis? what has been tried to get them to cease and desift. and how congress, how might congress make this job clearer and easier for the administration if that's what's necessary here? >> mr. chairman, thank you for that. a couple of things i'd like to note first, the iranian relationship to the bashar al assad regime is not new but their assistance to the regime now in this conflict has grown substantially. i could cite for example, that the iranian revolutionary guard corps lost a general in syria. and they have lost other personnel as well. and of course, i don't want to fail to mention that lebanonese hezbollah is p
hezbollah what it truly is, a terrorist organization. [cheers and applause] >> was the worlbecause the world cannot tolerate an organization that tock piles rockets to shot at cities and massacres men and women and children in syria right now. the fact that hezbollah's ally the assad regime has stockpiles of chemical weapons only heightens the urgency. we will continue to cooperate closely to guard against that danger. i've made it clear to bashar al-assad and all who follow his orders, we will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons against the syrian people or the transfer of those weapons to terrorists. the world is watching, we will hold you accountable. [applause] >> the syrian people have the right to be freed from the grip of a dictator who would rather kill his own people than relinquish power. [applause] >> assad must go so the serious future can begin. because true stability in syria depends upon establishing a government that is responsible to its people, one that protects all communities within its border while making peace in countries beyond them. these are the things i think
to either have a hamas or hezbollah, related rocket attack, freeze up the process -- if the israelis say any rockets land on our side during this process, all bets are off. then it's too easy for two things to happen, one is a -- a hard line palestinian group to go we don't want the peace process. we want israel to not exist, so all we have to do is fire one rocket, and they are back to zero, or any hard line israeli group letting or tas italy if you want to go false flag or those things the fear of it from the palestinian side is the hard line israelis who don't want the palestinian state to exist have just funded or supplied a rocket to the wrong people so they can guarantee it doesn't move forward. >> caller: okay. i just -- >> hal: you have to stand beyond the violence. even if the violence continues we must continue the negotiations and that hasn't been the case. >> caller: hal, i'm going to say one thing, again, i don't think you can argue. unlike what is going on here with the congress because of the israeli parliamentary system, if the hard line to the ri
conventional weapons. you have these al qaeda groups in trying to get their hands on them. hezbollah trying to get their hands on them. this is a powder keg. it makes what happened in libya with their weapons that spread across the northern africa and the maghreb, in fact i argue that mali was the first victim of weapons that escape out of that, these weapons make libya looks like antique gun show. heather: general jack keanes retired, former four-star general and vice chief of staff of the army, and fox military analyst joins us with more. high probability you heard him say there. do you think chemical weapons are being used in syria by the assad regime or by rebel groups? what do you think? >> i don't know but chairman rogers, highly respected chairman of the intelligence committee has access to information that very select leaders have in this country. so when he is drawing a conclusion it is likely it is probable, i think we have to take him at his word. i believe also before our government would take any action, they would have to actually confirm that chemical weapons were used. heath

missiles from hamas and hezbollah in the northern part of the country. iron dome battery is financed by the united states. u.s. put $300 million in this. it is one of things president obama is doing to show his support for israel. he has a speech nationally televised to about a thousand college students. that comes tomorrow. you can expect him to do a direct sell to the israeli people what are the ideas for the country and middle east going forward. why that is the right thing. during his first term the israeli people large lay thought president obama ignored them. you will a lot of one-on-one salesmanship going forward. my grandmother used to say not what you say but how you say it. this is how you say it trip. martha: that is great advice from your grandmother. they were trying to say it very, very well at the initial meeting, it was he have evident. leland, thank you very much. bill: remarkable, martha when you look at the geography for the country of israel. here is the region here. lebanon to the north. israel down here. what we wanted to show you the threat the israelis live wi
in the hands of hezbollah. it's calling on the international community to act. >> "assad is slaughtering his own people for years now, and the international community is just in a way watching. condemning is fine, but it's not enough." the president said the u-s is investigating whether chemical weapons were used. >> "once we establish the facts, i have made clear that the use of chemical weapons is a game -changer." >> reporter: the president is also hoping to lay the groundwork for mideast peace negotiations. >> "we'll continue to look for steps that both israelis and palestinians can take to build trust and confidence upon which lasting peace will depend." >> reporter: in washington, i'm tory dunnan. >> catherine: the limo awaiting president obama's arrival in israel broke down. it happened because the driver refueled with gasoline instead of diesel. this is a picture of the limo being towed. the presidential limousine, known as the "beast," is a specially built cadillac that's estimated to weigh 8 tons. there are multiple, identical copies that are used to transport the president around
from outside from iran on -- and hezbollah on one side and from saudi arabia, qatar and other states on the other. if there's any hope of diffusing the conflict, one way is going to have to deal with the issues of iranian support. iran is deeply concerned because syria is the major foothold in the arab world. there's a long standing syria through the decline or democrat myself of the assad regime, which i think is inevitable, will be a serious blow to iran. >> so if you have washington, sir, on one side of the scale and tehran on the other, who does baghdad more closely align with? >> well, our hope is, of course, that it will be a truly democratic regime which will be primarily loyal to the interests of the people in iraq and that their views will be consistent with others in supporting and strengthening democratic institutions. but as with many of the other countries in the middle east, there are a whole series of conflicting interests there and it will play out over a long period of time. but our interest is in democratic institutions, democratic societies who will serve their peo
and it is not just al qaeda it is hezbollah and hamas are in there. ncouragement ofypt, we had the muslim brotherhood presidency which more and more we find out, it has been an effort to undermine everything in the middle east, and of course iran and that problem is not going away. the president has made a bold move in the middle east and i think in terms of these we countries silt not working. >> let me say about the chemical weapons he had the head of the intelligence committee saying it appears they used, the syrian government, syrian weapons outside aleppo, i think it was. the president, in israel, at a press conference, said he didn't think they did use it. now, the intelligence committee, and the chairman, he is get that from the obama executive branch. someone is telling them one thing and the president is saying something else. they need to get their act in gear. >> the republicans put together, some of them, a report that they called an autopsy, why they called it an autopsy i have no idea but that is the word they used, 100-page report saying certain positions on social issues, gentleman, a
that i'm talking b israel, jordan and turkey, then there are the connections to groups such as hezbollah, hamas and the al-qaida affiliate in iraq. in recent testimony on capitol hill the nation's top intelligence officer explained how islamists groups are gaining grounds. >> the bad news is the presence of the al-qaida in iraq offshoot that has gained strength both numerically and otherwise in syria. >> reporter: what this recent video shows is the intense fighting, and the rocket-propelled grenades and missiles in and around various parts of the country including the capital of damascus. the heaved the house intelligence committee explained on sunday the stockpiles of chemical and pie lodge alweapons and conventional arsenal like what you see here are at risk. >> you have elements of hamas in syria now trying to get their hands on this stuff, and you also have conventional weapons that makes the flood of weapons from libya flying across the northern africa look like an antique gun shoefrpblgts what makes syria matter according to analysts are the connections not only to other regional
hezbollah from lebanon. they need protection against them. i don't think obama can sustain that, congress will come to israel's support but there could be a window of vulnerability that makes it very difficult situation even more difficult. stuart: is that a big enough threat for the israelis not to do what they want to do? >> the israelis want the united states to do it. because we would do a much better job. when it comes down to it, it never depend on anybody else to defend them. stuart: need your comment on this, jordan's king, beware the muslim brotherhood, they are a wolf in sheep's clothing. >> that is what he has said for years. he is a target of the muslim motherhood. stuart: thing we should give the money to the egyptians? >> we are playing a power game inside of egypt. stuart: ambassador john bolton, thank you. $16.7 billion rising our national debt. debt. i was out of control, but it is an immediate threat, immediate problem. i asked that question to a top journalist at the "wall street journal." next. day is gonna be an important day for us. you ready? we wanna be our brother
hezbollah what it truly is, a errorist organization. [applause] because the world cannot tolerate an organization that murders innocent civilians, stockpiles rockets to shoot at cities and is murdering women and children in syria right now. [applause] the fact that hezbollah's ally assad's regime has sock piled -- stockpiled chemical weapons as only heightened the urnlsi. we will continue the guard against that. i made it clear to assad and all that follow his orders, we will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons or the transfer of those weapons. the world is watching and we will hold you accountable.

hezbollah so why the u.s. doesn't want to get involved in another war in the middle east, this will be a discussion about where they see the civil war in syria heading. and what the chaos in syria heading and what the chaos could mean for the rest of the region. >> all right, thank you so much for that report live from jerusalem. >>> our coverage of the president's mideast visit does not end here. more live reports from jerusalem later on "america this morning" as well as "good morning america," and you can find additional background on abcnews.com. >>> the pentagon has called a halt to the use of 60 millimeter mortar shells. seven marines killed. several others injured during exercises deep in the nevada desert. investigators trying to figure out white a mortar round fired in the firing tube during the exercise. >>> dramatic new details of the massacre plot averted on the university of central florida campus. police say the gunman had planned to pull the fire alarm and then start shooting as students rushed out of their dorms. that plot was stopped
'd be concerned that chemical weapons could get to their enemies, hezbollah, in lebanon. but beyond that, ashleigh, you asked if this would overtake iran as a concern, and the answer is no. because this trip for the president is largely about israel's security broadly. and the u.s. assuring israelis that the president stands for keeping israel safe, and when it comes to security, there is no bigger concern in israel than iran getting a nuclear weapon or nuclear capability, so that will always be the number one issue on the agenda and syria now will compete for some attention as well. >> well, with a busy agenda, you're going to be following this, the president. we are watching live. this was scheduled to start any moment now, the president, shimon peres, and also our united states president, president obama, scheduled to speak any moment. we'll wring it to you live the moment it does happen. chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin, thank you for that. >>> when it comes to difficult and challenging jobs, being the director of a prison is certainly near the top of the list. and you can bet t
this yesterday. does syria's arsenal and weapons get in the hands of not just the opposition but hezbollah, hamas, other jihadist groups in this region? the word security takes on many different shapes, many different wrinkles. when you're meeting with the palestinian president it's normally about negotiations and security cooperations with israel. because of everything going on in this part of the world, it's a lot more complicated. and syria, including worries about the use of chemical weapons, you bet that would be a fkter as well. >> we're looking at live pictures of president obama and mahmoud abbas. we saw the president shaking hands and reviewing the palestinian troops. >> similarities from yesterday, this is a red carpet reception, pomp and circumstance as well but protest that is will be greeting him as he lands there and goes through the region. >> jessica yellin is in ramallah, covering this trip. you've been talking to the white house for days now about this what is it that the white house wants to achieve with president ab abbas today? >> reporter: hi, john. hi, zoraida. they're hope
consequences and fear of spilling out and hezbollah looms large. >> wish we had more historical depth how we look at this. this is the third arab state to be devastated by a civil war. without pointing fingers of blame, lebanon for 15 years was devastated by civil war. foreign armies, foreign intelligence services. after the u.s. invasion in 2003 iraq went through a different but similar process. >> let's point fingers, please. >> in case of iraq we can point finger at the bush administration, it's very clear. it's not just displacement of millions of people. it's not just people being slaughtered which is happening in syria. it's the deconstruction of stooss of state, the idea of a state of law, all -- >> the worst elements of society. >> exactly. giving free rein to people whose objectives and aims and means are horrific as far as, including most syrians are concerned or most iraqis and lebanese were concerned and stopping this as quickly as possible is something we should be concerned about. as this continues, the radicalization and extremism gets worse. >> the ripple effect, the reason w
. you have thousands now of al qaeda fighters joining the fight here and hezbollah. you have chemical weapons at stake and veconventional weapon at stake. we're one of the few nations with the capability to train people. it's about small groups, special capabilities, so that you leverage our credibility so we can get a diplomatic solution and secure those weapon systems. that's a good day for america, but you have to make the decision to move forward. again, i think indecision here at this point, given the way we see what's happening on the ground, is dangerous for our national security. >> worth pointing out again, some 70,000 people have been killed as this fight has continued on. chairman rogers, great to see you, thank you so much. we'll continue talking about this very important issue. >> thanks, kate, and welcome back. >>> the last time prince harry visited the u.s., he ended up needing to explain some scandalous nude pictures taken in las vegas. well, he's just scheduled another u.s. visit. find out where he is and isn't going. coming up next. acceler-rental. at a hertz express
they have to be worried about hezbollah to their right. >> alisyn: they need each other. the president, president obama and benjamin netanyahu need each other. we need to have a good relationship between these two countries. netanyahu famously was close to mitt romney. they were students together i think at harvard business school and worked together for a while. but these two, maybe this is the first step in these two forging some sort of closer bond. >> steve: we showed you the video of the president coming down the stairs of air force one not too long ago here on the program. what's interesting, the microphone kind of picks it up. we want you -- we've been wondering whether or not the charm offensive was real. listen to what the president here in this country, not the charm offensive in israel -- listen to what the president says to bb netanyahu when they greet just moments ago. >> i couldn't get away from congress. [ laughter ] >> steve: he said, it's good to get away from congress. and then there was a little laugh. >> brian: does he understand he's always got a microphone on? >>
's not about shiite and sunni and hezbollah. i think the real urgent issue i think they have to move forward because we are witness to a great tragedy in that part of the world. >> but, alex, it always turns back to the united states. afghanistan, after 9/11. iraq when, you know, a lot of our allies, other than french, the french were saying, got weapons of mass destruction we have to do about it now in syria. do we continue to exist in the middle of an international order where nothing is done unless it's kids from kansas and california and upstate new york and florida that do the fighting? >> yeah. i think this is one of those moments where, i think, you can almost sense the internal conflict in the white house giving the agagenocide. i don't know how the president will commit any troops given the state of affair of our troops when they return home, 600,000 veterans are stale waiting for their claims to send more boys and women, men and women over there. it would not seem to be any actual support for that. at the same time, how do you reconcile that with the blood shed? 70,000 people are d
that hezbollah's ally assad's regime has sock piled rockets, we will guard against that. i made it clear to assad and all that follow his orders, we will chemicalate the use of weapons or the transfer of those weapons. the world is watching and we will hold you accountable. [applause] the syrian people have the right to be free from the grip of a dictator who would rather kill s own people than relinquish power. assad must go so a serious future can begin. because true stability in syria depends on establishing a government that is responsible to its people. one that protects all communities within its borders while making peace with countries beyond them. that this is what i think about when i think about israel's security. when i think about israel's security i also think about the people who have a living memory of the holocaust. faced with a government that is called for iran's disruption. no wound their israel views this as a threat. this is not simply a challenge for israel but it is a danger for the entire world, including the united states. [applause] a nuclear-armed iran will raise the r
will use it. the real danger is hezbollah gets it and would use it on israel. that's the great fear that i have. >>brian: general, how do you know all this stuff about agents? was that a focus of yours? >> i used to be in command of a unit that used to have that mission before we signed the chemical weapons treaty. i'm intimately familiar with using them, storing them, putting them on airplanes. this is with fighters we had them. and that is a very difficult area to work on. and i had a great deal of experience with that. of course we no longer use them and it's no longer in our inventory. >>brian: we know the president said that's a red line. we think we know where this stuff is housed. can we go with an airstrike, blow it up and not poison the surrounding population? >> no. i think you'd have secondary fallout and it would go -- i think you've got to seize it on the ground. you could do that. you'd have to hit it very extensively and try to pulverize it but there would be greater risk on that. >>brian: what are the chances of the return address on these chemicals being iraq? >> i think t
